Re re-shaped this Black Opal to Repair it

This Black Opal had been worn for years and was badly chipped around the sides. The top was also heavily scratched.

I remove the chips by re-shaping the stone, which makes it a bit smaller.

Below, you will see photos and description of the cutting process.

Before fixing the Black Opal

You can see the chips around the sides of this Black Opal. It is hard to see in this photo but the top is also very scratched.

It now has a nice oval shape and the top has also been re-polished.
